    Bucket list drive: Stelvio Pass

    Not this time - flying visit... You’re right about the hairpins. The handbrake was quite handy... ;-). I think the damp road helped and I didn’t see another car or bike all the way up. Will never manage that again! Coming back via Briançon - know the Lauteret pass really well so I enjoy that one - very open... The lock is actually very good on the 86. Did get me thinking though - recently got an fwd Alfa Spider, and the steering lock on those is abysmal due to the weird steering geometry Alfa use. No way would that have got round those bends...

    Off season must be the thing. Utterly deserted today, and nicely damp [emoji41]. That said, very lucky the snow hasn’t come yet. Usually closed by now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. This has been on my bucket list since forever and it didn’t disappoint. Thus drive was worth the price of the GT86 alone. I got really lucky with it still being open this late, and it was absolutely deserted. Just me, the car and traction control turned off. [emoji48] Fantastic - never driven a road so twisty most of the hairpins are FIRST gear... [emoji15]. Very much recommended...

    So - visiting Japan. Tips?

    Brilliant! Thanks for those. Plenty of thoughts to google. Myself? Mainly going for the cultural experience - so definitely a Ryokan and baths on the agenda and plenty of food. My kids are increasingly manga/anime nuts so it’s all about that for them... But can’t go there without at least a bit of a poke around the car museums and renting something interesting. GT86 a bit tight for us all now on a long trip, but plenty of places seem happy to rent me a WRX or some such, so that’ll do [emoji41]. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I know some people on here have travelled to Japan Planning a trip with the family as turns out we’ve all got it on our bucket list. Can only manage two weeks, most likely at Easter. So assuming we’ll do Tokyo and Kyoto and probably venture out from there but obviously can’t cover length of the country in that time, what should I consider doing? There’ll be a bit of hurtling around by bullet train, but also happy to rent cars and travel out... Obviously petrolhead type recommendations most welcome as one of the reasons I’m going... but also anything else you’d consider unmissable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sorry - been away awhile...

    Hi Lauren! Just catching up... I see yours now has excellent stripes. I approve. Also lots and lots of miles. To my shame mine only done 25k or so. Work from home so much more these days... Also - hi Mike. See your tuning packages are still going down well. I still may be back for that turbo... Playing the long game here. At current mileage rate I’m going to get 20 years out of this car. Nothing tempting me out of it. Unless someone lends me £50k for an Alpine A110. But that’s about it...

    Sorry - been away awhile...

    It’s been that long, thought I ought to say hello again, though I have been intermittently lurking. Still got the car, still love it, but work and house renovations have totally got in the way of doing anything else with it or to it... Bob is four this month. Still as much fun as the day I got him. I might even make more effort to stick around here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hi Nicebiscuit. I also have a primo poverty spec which I am very happy with too. Was totally ignorant of the different spec when bought in a rush, she only had 1900 miles so was like buying new with no vat 😊. Wish i had done more research but ho hum. Granddaughter loves her.

  14. Nope. 16 inchers so I could get me snow chains in for the Alps. Old school... Look crap - work brilliantly on a couple of inches of snow... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Don't mind if you do drive on them - though we would all take the Mick... Lauren's car on knock-off JDM-copy wheels - whatever next ;-D Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
